The second Draw:Stitch workshop funded by Ideas Test took place at Grain on Wednesday October 14th.
We were so lucky with the weather, the sun shone and the sky was blue giving us some great views of the landscape. Have at look at the pictures below. It was a fabulous place for drawing, with the drama of the power station and its chimney (which is 244 metres high) and the fabulous views across to Sheerness and along the Medway and the Thames. Apparently Turner painted the Fighting Temeraire from here as the ship was towed from Sheerness to Rotherhithe to be broken up.
We adjourned to the Library Chapel at Grain for an afternoon of stitching and collaging with cloth.
